Which Star Wars Prequel Character Are You?
You are Jar Jar! ... You probably get in trouble at school for talking. Do your parents ever lock you in your room and drive far, far away in their car? You should try duck tape. Duck tape and Benedryl. You're the reason George Lucas has to redeem himself! You bastard!

I don't mind being Jar Jar.

Which STAR WARS character are you?

Er.... maybe I do mind...

OK, here's a test that rated me in 5 categories, and then compared me to how they rated some Star Wars characters.

openness neither high nor low (53 percentile)
Astro Mech Droids -- This model of droid lies in the middle of the Openness dimension because although they are generally rule bound and conservative, they are also creative and often ingenious in their approach to the problem at hand.
High scorers tend to be original, creative, curious, complex; Low scorers tend to be conventional, down to earth, narrow interests, uncreative.
conscientious very low (10 percentile)
Han Solo -- This disheveled and scruffy smuggler leads a reckless and haphazard life, with little respect for rules and procedures.
High scorers tend to be reliable, well-organized, self-disciplined, careful; Low scorers tend to be disorganized, undependable, negligent.
extraversion very high (86 percentile)
Lando Calrissian -- An energetic, sociable man. He is adventure seeking, talkative, and socially skilled.
High scorers tend to be sociable, friendly, fun loving, talkative; Low scorers tend to be introverted, reserved, inhibited, quiet.
agreeableness low (27 percentile)
Boba Fett -- A mean and menacing bounty hunter, known for his ruthlessness.
High scorers tend to be good natured, sympathetic, forgiving, courteous; Low scorers tend to be critical, rude, harsh, callous.
neuroticism very low (2 percentile)
Princess Leia -- A confident & calm individual who does not crack under pressure (e.g.,. when being threatened by Lord Vader). She is brave and relaxed, even when in great danger (e.g., when disguising herself as a bounty hunter to gain access to Jabba the Hutt's palace).
High scorers tend to be nervous, high-strung, insecure, worrying; Low scorers tend to be calm, relaxed, secure, hardy.

Evil Anakin Skywalker at 19. You don't want all the
evil, just a big bite. Just make sure you don't
bite off more than you can chew.

Which Star Wars Character is Your Soulmate?

Kinda young, ain't he?

100% Anakin
Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen)
He may not be the most talented actor, but he sure
is hot and just right for you! Well, at least
his character is, anyway. He is devilish and
determined and is willing to die for loved
ones. Very destructive.

I'd just like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that they are under no obligation to read everything I post, especially when I've been relatively stuck at home for 3 days.

With that said, I'm going to talk about Episode 3. OK, see, Anakin is going to go dark side, but it's going to be via Palpatine, and nowt to do with Dooku. So, somehow, Dooku has to get axed. Do you think it'll be Palpatine who does it? We all know it's going to be Boba Fett who 86s Mace Windu. That better be the battle of the century, too. Or we'll all be horribly disappointed. Or, maybe Anakin's hatred of Dooku will cause him to turn to the dark side, like Palpatine said in Ep 6 to Luke. Or, maybe he'll die peacefully in his sleep. That won't make for a very interesting movie, though. I hope they leave all the Padme stuff for the epilogue, because she's a horribly boring character. Odd, isn't it, that the strongest female character in the Star Wars series is from the 70's, when strong female characters weren't the norm. And what of Geonosis? I really like the Geonosians. Do you know the leader of the hive is named Poggle the Lesser? How cool is that? Poggle! But you know he's goin' down. And who is this pointy-headed guy who was instrumental in the manipulation of Jar-Jar? I tried to figure out his name, but I keep getting confused.
So, we know they're not going to show the actual clone war. But it has to be action-packed, and not politics-packed, because we've shown that, as an audience, we like action. We only tolerated the romance in Episode II because it was plot related and we had time to go to the can or get a soda. I would like to see a radical group dedicated to the humane treatment of animals that are used as executioners, maybe randomly releasing dangerous creatures at the worst possible time for the heros. The only animal I can think of that *didn't* get killed as a result of being used as an executioner is the Sarlacc, unless Boba Fett killed it from inside. Those three animals in Ep 2 are acklay (the spider thing), nexu (wolverine thing), and reek (musk ox thing).
So, back to my pathetic dreams of what I'd like to see in Episode 3. OK, the clone war is over, and the Jedi are all but extinct. We still need Mace Windu, Obi-wan, and Yoda to escape. We also need the introduction of Han Solo. But what's the timeline? I've always sorta figured that Boba Fett and Han Solo were of approximately the same age, but that's because I don't read expanded universe. And I'm not gonna! So there! Hahahaha!! ONLY MOVIES COUNT. But that would put him MINIMUM 10 years older than Luke, and that's REALLY stretching it. I guess that makes sense, seeing as how he calls Luke 'kid' all through Ep 4. I call 20 year olds kids, and I'm only 33.
I'll tell you what I *don't* want to see, and that's boring exposition concerning facts we already know, like the separation of Luke and Leia, and the placement of Luke with Owen & Beru. We already know about it, and it's not action-packed, so I hope they skip that. I would like to see more of Yoda the Badass, though. So, Palpatine planned this whole clone war thing, to help him get rid of the Jedi, and then what? I guess he pretends to be all sad in public, and then keeps his behind the scenes machinations to rule the universe. Wow, that's deliciously evil! So, where did Boba Fett go? He couldn't have escaped Geonosis during the actual battle, they would have noticed. And then, what did he do, go back to Kamino? Surely not, that's where the Jedi are going to be, to get more troops. Or maybe that *is* why he goes back, so he can plot his revenge on Mace Windu. Or, he stays on Geonosis for awhile. But that doesn't sound likely. I hope we get to see the introduction of Greedo, too. Greedo rules. Oona toota, Solo? I need to get eps 4-6 on DVD. (OK, before you call me a heretic, I just got a DVD player a month ago, and I own exactly 7 DVDs. Two were gifts to me, two were gifts to my child, and two I purchased with my Discovery Store gift check. And I bought Ep II with my Blockbuster gift card, pre-viewed.)
So, how does hatred, fear, and anger lead to the cold, calculating deviousness of Palpatine? Maybe he went to the dark side based on logic, rather than on emotion. Maybe he was older when he realized he could control the force, and he was smarter than everyone else he knew, so he figured he should use it to conquer the galaxy. And then he found out that the best way to be ruler of all was to join the dark side. Then, he conquers the universe, and eventually he has so much invested in the dark side that it becomes his master, instead of vice-versa. (Based on how he dared Luke to strike him down, just to get Luke to the dark side.) So, first, he used the dark side to gain power. Then, he used power to get people to the dark side. Not really his fault. You gotta respect Palpatine.
OK, I wonder if all 19 year old Jedi padowans act like Anakin, because he pretty much acts like a 19 year old regular guy. All teenagers think they know more than the people who guide them. I think it's hormonal.
So, if someone succumbs to their anger, hatred, and fear, I suppose that just means the dark side has them under control already, rather than my theory on Palpatine. So I guess that's why they keep trying to do it that way. Keeps the young'uns in line.

Do you know, I saw Star Wars, the first one, episode 4, on opening night. I had to sit by people I didn't know, too, because they didn't have any seats together by the time we went in. That was back in the day of ushers, when you could yell "MASHER!" and an usher would show up to protect you. No matter how cool the subsequent films have been, nothing will match the awesome screen presence of the first scene Darth Vader appeared in. I nearly peed. (What?! I was seven!)
